Little Purls of Wisdom

A lot of knittting, and maybe a little wisdom.

Maybe this wasn’t such a good plan… March 19, 2008

This whole “two shows at once” thing. Sure it’s fun, but it’s a lot of work! So, due to the two shows going on now, as well as lots of class work I probably won’t post for a while. I’ll be knitting for sure, but taking the time to take pictures and put them on my computer and posting them may not happen for a while. I finished a few socks over break, and started some other ones. I’ll have pictures at some point. Happy knitting and wish me luck!

Yarn! March 10, 2008

So, I was supposed to post these a while ago, but then midterms happened. Here’s an update on my knitting though.

I dyed some yarn a weekend or two ago. Here’s what I made:

That’s all the yarn I dyed. Libby and Jenni were there, too. Jenni didn’t stay long, but man did we have a good time. Here’s a run down of my yarn:

Two skeins of red lace weight:

I over dyed the skein of merino/silk lace weight that I used last year:

Self striping sock yarn (short stripes):

And, the whole point of the day:

Self striping Albion sock yarn. yay! Libby made 2 skeins, one for her and one for the one and only Yarn Harlot. Good times.

Last time we had a lot of pictures. This time I only have 4.

We didn’t have gloves, so our hands turned funny colors:

Jenni was shocked.

Libby re-wound the skeins to prepare for self striping yarn:

Look at her go…

We even got the guy working at the Nature Center to dye yarn with us.

He made his mom a Mother’s Day present. It was very sweet. Converting the muggles, one non-knitter at a time…

I’ve been knitting stuff, too.
I finished the Noro socks.

I’m in love.

I started another pair of socks for class/movie knitting. They’re pretty cute, but aren’t very far along. I have lots of other stuff to work on over spring break, and not just knitting. Gotta love homework. The good news is that
MOUSE COMES HOME TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It’s midterms week. I have rehearsal for 2 plays, plus rehearsals for my 2 directing scenes. I also have paperwork to fill out to apply for stuff like scholarships and an on campus job. Not to mention homework and getting ready for exams/acting finals…

I dyed yarn last weekend and it’s beautiful. I’ll post pictures after this week is over. Good luck on midterms everyone!

p.s.

I’m sick of winter. I want it to be spring.
